Program Description

The SIIT Miyoskamin: Innovation & Entrepreneurship Applied Certificate program will launch in February 2022!

Miyoskamin is a Plains Cree word meaning spring, and the ground is breaking.

This exciting new program is five months in duration, and will provide you with the knowledge, skills, mentorship, and awareness of emerging technologies to succeed in running an innovative small business. You will learn Indigenous and non-Indigenous worldviews around governance, finance, marketing, labour, and sustainability, through conversation and connection with Elders and knowledge keepers, Indigenous entrepreneurs, local innovators, and through land-based practices.

Completing this program will help you define your own entrepreneurship goals, as well as demonstrate how new technologies and traditional practices can come together in innovative ways to benefit communities, businesses, and culture.
